"Joy" | Jamelody

The name of the album is "Be Prepared" and the song that featured in this post is titled 'Joy'. The album was released in 2008 and has 15 tracks for your listening pleasure. I heard this song on WACK radio earlier today when DJ Devie dropped it in the evening session. I was surprised that I did not hear the song before. It is so beautifully sung by Jamelody. This son of the soil has such an uplifting voice that it soothes the soul. I was so taken by this song that I listened to it over and over again. The lyrics are beautifully woven and the nothing but joy is expressed and felt.  All I can say is that this song is a bunch of rose flowers given with heartfelt joy and love. 

This song is now one of my favorite relaxing tracks to calm my soul; it is presented here for your listening pleasure. This shows the talent of the land is not just aligned to Soca and Calypso but also in other alternative Trini Vibes.

Here is some information that I found about Jamelody on the site Discogs.

Real Name: Michael Williams
Profile: Michael "Jamelody" Williams was born in Carenage Trinidad in 1980. The baby of six children, it was not long before his parents and older siblings realized that he was a very gifted vocalist and musician. As a member of this very spiritual family it was almost destined that young Michael would be part of the church choir. There, he expanded his vocal ability while embracing his religion. As a teenager he started to apply his vocal skills to making reggae compositions with sweet melodies and hooks in a style very characteristic of the R&B he had been singing earlier in his life but with rich cultural and spiritual content. This is why he took the name "Jamelody" (Jah Melody) It was at a captivating performance as an opening act for a reggae show in Port of Spain which brought him to the attention of his current manager who immediately took him to Jamaica to begin recording.
